Verizon Business helps Siemens go Zero Trust

Verizon Business is supporting Siemens’s Zero Trust Program with secure networking capabilities designed to provide Siemens employees with a seamless plug-and-play user experience.

Under the agreement, Verizon Business will provide internet-only connectivity including a global managed wide area network based on Cisco’s Meraki technology.

Siemens’s Zero Trust program ensures that all devices used by Siemens employees must be authenticated, authorised and continuously validated before being given access to the company’s mission-critical applications and data.

The German multinational company has adopted a ‘never trust, always verify’ principle for the program, according to Siemens Head of IT Digital Foundation Elmar Spreitzer.

“With Verizon, we found a new partner to provide secure, internet-based network access for our simple office sites,” Spreitzer said.

Verizon Business EMEA VP Sanjiv Gossain said the solution is aimed at helping the company balance security risks while still delivering a user-friendly, digital working experience. “That’s where an intelligent network can make underlying architectures more nimble by managing traffic and making operations more efficient,” he said.

US-based Verizon Business boasts a global IP network that can carry IP, data and voice traffic across more than 1 million route miles. The company is a subsidiary of one of America’s largest telcos, which generated revenues of US$136.8 billion ($204.5 billion) in 2022.
